    @Sniff: We are sorry if you are not happy with MaxiVista.

    However, claiming of being "ripped off" goes a little bit too far, as we do not advertise touch pad functionality at all.

    We are sorry if you got this impression and would be eager to learn, which of our marketing material gaves you the impression that we would offer what you have thought. We will immediately update the materials in question.

    Can you help?

    We thought, it would be clear what MaxiVista has to offer in the video demo.

    You seem to compare MaxiVista to Air Display but we never said, that both applications would be identical. They are OSX, we are Windows. A completely different thing.

    The advertised purpose of MaxiVista is use to your iPad as an extended screen screen with a very high performance and we believe that we excel in this department. We invented this functionality in 2003 and gathered a lot of experience in display network transmission over the years.

    MaxiVista includes sophisticated display data compression algorithms with a high grade of customizability and an interactive performance optimizer wizard that automatically adapts to your individual network environment.

    --

    While the iPad is positioned on a stand next to the Windows PC monitor, we believe, that there is little use for the iPad's touch pad, as you can easily use the Windows PC mouse to control elements on the iPad monitor. Of course, there are applications for touch pad support, that would make sense and we consider to add such function to a future MaxiVista version. We just prefer to do the main feature right first, and add additional features at a later point.

    P.S.: By the way, your sole contribution to this forum at this time are 2 sequential postings to rant about our software in harsh words. Criticism in general is appreciated and we are happy to get user feedback. We are sorry that we could not meet your expectations and hope for your additional feedback to allow us to improve our offerings. I only hope, that I am no victim of a competitor's sock puppet. No offense intended and I apologize, if I am wrong but your posting is somehow suspicious for me in this regard. Time will tell.

    I like using my iPad as a second monitor/independent computer as I hate task switching.
    Just a personal preference but one I'm happy to indulge as the speed of the iPad makes it viable in practise.

    Like the image of the iPad as a sock puppet to my main machine.........

    Hmmm wonder if they'll pay for the icon redesign?

    @sniff - I don't use it that way (I use it a second monitor) but definitely agree that if you wanted a touchable screen for your device, this isn't the app for you... and hope it wasn't my comments that misled. In windows land, there are some remote desktop apps that are closer in functionality - see itap, for example - but these aren't really second monitor apps, as far as I know.

    I wish after the 50+ apps purchased, that I only had one app that I wasn't happy about that was gathering dust! My most expensive blunder was a $40 nav app that has really old maps - oops. That said, for what I'm doing, maxivista is still one of my MOST used apps and it is the real deal as a second monitor.

    @Maxivista - I wouldn't get too embroiled in it - that is the nature of forums Maybe just posting that they should PM you and then having a nice refund policy would help.

    Actually it was you in this post...

    The post says.. "does Air Display work on XP"

    And you responded "I have a program I releasing today that does just that"

    And I am not a sockpuppet for your competitor... Maybe you need to stay away from all post about Air Display if you are nothing like them. I felt you mislead me personally. Truth is I searched for a release date of Air Display for windows and found this thread.

    Lets just say I'm pissed I spent/wasted $9.99 on this and I want my money back so I can get Air Display when the release come out.

    I guess.. if you are not supporting the multi-touch.. Then I personally want to make sure nobody else makes the same mistake I did. I want anyone searching for the windows release of air display that finds you, knows the truth. Air Display supports the multi touch screen and Maxivista doesn't. Air Display well take the power of the ipad and adds it to your PC in the form of a multitouch screen. Maxivista effectively reduces your ipad to a basic display, if thats all you want, sell the ipad and buy another monitor.

    With all due respect, you need to go back and read the original post:

    MaxiVista did not mislead you, you didn't read the entire post or misinterpreted the question.

    OK, you're pissed, but you can only get your money back if an app does not work as described. Will it work as a 2nd monitor? Absolutely! It is ultimately up to the buyer to do their own research to determine if it is suitable for their application.

    "Caveat Emptor!" Sorry, but I am not feeling your pain.

    @ 1991-C4: This was a post about Air Display. Air Display is coming out with a windows version. Maybe Maxivista should stay out of treads about his competitors product if it well lead to people pointing out the difference.

    I don't get a refund because I made a mistake. Ok fair enough.. Then I well make sure others don't make the same mistake.. Hopefully I can stop 100's of others from making the same mistake & wasting 10 bucks.

    I like how there was no response from Maxivista, once I let him know that it was his own post in this thread that mislead me..

    It would have been nice if he at least apologized for calling me a competitors sock puppet. I still can't believe he did that. Not very good business practice..

    Maybe he was just tired of dealing with YOU!

    You just don't get it, do you? He did not mislead you. You mis-read the opening post where the guy asked about using his iPad with AirDisplay as an extra monitor under XP.

    MaxiVista was completely 100% spot-on correct in saying that his application would do what the OP wanted it to do - enable the iPad to serve as an extra monitor on an XP system.

    The OP never mentioned anything about needing a remote desktop application. You simply assumed he did because that is primarily one of the features of Air Display.

    Was the MaxiVista rep acting in the most professional manner? No. He certainly fell short in that respect. Recommending an app in which you have a vested interest is definitely a no-no on this forum and may he hasn't been around because the staff may have told him to knock it off. I am not on the staff here, so that is a total WAG on my part.

    Let this be a $10 lesson for you. Get over it and move on.

    Sniff, you are showing great talent to ignore evrything.

    You fail to read the product description. It was your own ignorence not to read what you buy.

    You also fail to read the Maxvista reply. He has not say that you would be a sock puppet. He just say that he would be worry if you would be a sock puppet and he also apologized in advance.

    If you would only learn to read!

    If asking me you are the perfect example of a sock puppet. I can not imagine a person be so crazy about the thing if there wouldnt be special interest. It looks staged because it is so nonsense. I would not reply to you if I am Maxvista.

    Maxvista delivers what they promise. I use it for long time for my Win desktop PC to labtop and are very happy that they offer a choice for the ipad too.

    Funny, that he chose the name "Sniffspam". ;-)
